The undeniable truth is, we are all going to die. So why not embrace the inevitable and go dancing to our graves? This year’s Nightfall—the crowning event of Green-Wood’s fall season—is inspired by the danse macabre or dance of death. Dating to the Middle Ages, it describes skeletons enticing kings, cardinals, and common folk to their graves with musical accompaniment (or for the more reluctant, by hook or by crook). It’s a poignant reminder that the same fate awaits us all. Till then, shake off any fears or anxieties and join us in a celebration of time we have left together.
Join us for the dance!
